This plugin allows administrators to configure, add and delete several dumb slaves at the same time.
When adding slaves, new names can be separated with space or be added as a number span. You can choose to create new "clean" slaves, or copy the settings from an existing slave. See picture below.
The first step when configuring existing slaves is to mark which slaves to edit. This can be done by using several filters, or by just selecting slaves manually. See picture below.
The second step is to choose which settings to change by using the check boxes, edit them and apply. See picture below.
Node properties can also be edited on several slaves at the same time since version 1.1.0. This is useful for editing any node specific settings that other plugins might contribute.
Properties that all selected slaves have in common will appear in the hetero-list from the beginning. The remove these properties, simply press delete and they will be moved to the Remove hetero-list.
To add more properties, just add them to the hetero-list.
To remove properties that not all selected slaves have, just select them in the remove properties hetero-list.
This page is new since version 1.1.0 and lets you take slaves online / offline and also connect / disconnect them.
Deleting slaves can be done by selecting which slaves to delete in the same way as when choosing to configure slaves.
If the slave name is needed as any setting, it's possible to use "$NAME" to get it expanded for each slave. For example, you could set the launch command to "launch /root/launch_slave $NAME.domain.com" on a slave called "slave1" and it would be saved as "launch /root/launch_slave slave1.domain.com".
